UT Equine Extension & Research Center
The UT Equine Extension & Research Center, located in Spring Hill TN, is home to the Horse Farm Management and Water Quality Improvement project demonstration farm, which showcases water quality best management practices (BMPs) for horse farms. Poorly managed and degraded pastures contribute significantly to Tennessee’s surface water pollutant loads of sediment, nutrients, and pathogens. Educational programs at the UT Equine Extension and Research Center and the three partnering farms, address horse farm best management practices (BMPs) to promote the overall welfare of horses and protect the environment by improving water quality.
Tennessee Master Horse Program
The Tennessee Master Horse
Program is an educational program designed for equine owners, enthusiasts

topics. The Tennessee Master Horse Program will be delivered within each region of
Tennessee during 2016.
The driving force
behind the Tennessee Master Horse Program is to raise the level of education on
equine-related topics and improve overall success of horse owners and producers
within the state of Tennessee. By providing science-based, objective
information families, youth, and the community can generate or continue to
